Trader Joe's opens October 11 in Tallahassee, Florida! Trader Joe's will be located in the Carriage Gate Shopping Center, at the intersection of Interstate 10 and Thomasville Road.
"Trader Joe's is named after its founder, Joe Coulombe. The chain began in 1958 as a Greater Los Angeles area chain of "Pronto Market" convenience stores. Joe Coulombe is said to have developed the idea of the Trader Joe South Seas motif while on vacation in the Caribbean. The Tiki culture fad of the 1950s and 1960s was fresh in the cultural memory, and Trader Vic's was at its height with twenty-five locations worldwide. He had noticed that Americans were traveling more and returning home with tastes for food and wine they had trouble satisfying in supermarkets of the time."
Trader Joe's will join Earth Fare, Fresh Market, and Whole Foods in the offering of upscale trendy grocery stores in Tallahassee, Florida.
Trader Joe's will open on October 11, 2013. The store will be located in Carriage Gate, a neighborhood shopping center located on Thomasville Road just north of Interstate 10.
